    Been here before in the evening but never for lunch. Was catching up with friends from many years ago and the atmosphere was just perfect. Waiting staff were there when you wanted them but were very discreet and left us to enjoy the food and chat. My friends from Herefordshire enjoy my choice. Thank You.

    The food poorly executed . Out of 3 meals only 1 was prepared to a proper standard, quite disappointing for what is fairly simple prepared food. I have eaten from this menu in another pub where the standard of food was infinitely better.

    I felt the staff were all excellent. The wine was good. I am a vegetarian and the menu offering roasted Cauliflower was not available the alternative was boring, cold, sloppy and tasteless. The carrots looked as though they were added to fill the plate. Disappointed and not encouraging to return.

    My food was excellent I had the steak, it was tender and cooked to perfection. My daughter was less happy however, she ordered the 'dirty burger' described as coming with ''lashings of cheese and bacon'' Unfortunately it also came with lots of salad in burger (not mentioned in menu) but that can be removed. But the lashings of cheese turned out to be your normal melted cheese square, fine: and some kind of squirty cheese sauce which couldnt be removed and coated everything. When we complained the waiter said thats what lashings of cheese meant! My daughter hates wet burger sauce (so couldnt eat her burger) but apparently squirty cheese isnt sauce according to chef so no refund or even part refund. So they lose a star for that. Everything else was lovely. They checked dessert for allergens for my daughter and portion size was good.

    Pleasant Sunday evening meal. Food and service were good. There was however quite a delay in providing the olives "while we pondered the menu" My wife was disappointed no extra dry Martini was available

    The staff were very welcoming and cheerful! I ordered Leek and potato soup as a starter, the consistency was like glue! Sadly my main course wasn’t very nice either. I ordered prawn and chorizo linguine which was Luke warm, I did send it back and when it was returned the taste wasn’t nice at all, it tasted like sweet chilli sauce had been thrown over it. The other 3 diners thought the food was a very average ok. It’s a shame because a couple of months ago we all shared a very enjoyable meal there.

    Whereas the service was exceptional, the main meal was poor. I am sorry to say that my wife's fish was dry and over-cooked and the chips were very oily. As a result, she did not eat much of the food. She is too polite to complain. My friends wife did not eat her Calamari starter as she said it was chewy and tasteless. She is also too polite to complain. We have eaten at the Fox on numerous occasions over the past 10 years, but it will now slip down our list of preferred restaurants after this eating experience.

    The food was good but they were clearly under staffed! The lady that served us was great & gave excellent service it was just a shame that they only had 3 people serving at a very busy time.
